  • The capitalist mantra of the one per centScott Stockdale
    October 30, 2011

    While Occupy movements continue to escalate around the world, based on the dominant theme that "We're the 99 per cent and you're the one per cent," - the dominant message is the anger that a small proportion of powerful people hold the majority of society's wealth -- and they seem to be getting richer. The CBC Radio program The Current recently interviewed some of the one per cent people.

    October 30, 2011

    Among the contenders for the leadership of the NDP, only Nathan Cullen has so far sketched out a co-operative arrangement to prevent a looming battle of attrition between the federalist progressive parties in the next federal election.

  • People's Power: Occupy Wall Street movementThe Canadian Charger
    October 23, 2011

    In the United States - the world's lone superpower and a beacon of hope for many the world over - 14 million people are officially unemployed and two million of those have given up looking for a job. And that's the tip of the iceberg: half a million people are homeless; nearly 50 million people are without health insurance; and 46 million Americans live below the poverty rate, yet banks and large corporations received billion dollar bailouts from taxpayers' hard-earned money and bank executives never stopped receiving million dollar bonuses, on top of their seven figure incomes.

  • This bizarre plot goes against all that is known of Iran's intelligence servicePatrick Cockburn
    October 23, 2011

    The claim that Iran employed a used-car salesman with a conviction for cheque fraud to hire Mexican gangsters to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington goes against all that is known of Iran's highly sophisticated intelligence service.

  • What is the endgame of the alleged Iran plot?Stephen M. Walt
    October 23, 2011

    It looks like the Administration is making a concerted campaign to ratchet up the pressure on Tehran. President Obama is standing firmly behind the administration's allegations, but without offering any new evidence to support them. This approach isn't going to wash, however, especially if journalists do their job, start asking a lot of probing questions, and don't allow themselves to get spun by "anonymous" sources and inside leaks.

  • A Palestinian state - reality or mirage?Bhupinder S. Liddar
    October 23, 2011

    "What wrong have these people done not to have a Palestinian passport - one of their country of birth, but are carrying passports of different countries?" the late Yasser Arafat asked Heath MacQuarrie and me, pointing to a room full of people next door.
